What does Edge sing in the chorus of BTBS?

In the second part of the chorus of Bullet The Blue Sky, where Bono sings "Bullet the blue, bullet the blue", I've always thought that Edge sings "Sky, sky". Listening to the more isolated vocals in the new remix of BTBS on The Joshua Tree 2017, it sounds more like "shout" or "shot". What do you thin he sings?

I've always heard the lyric as "Sky", but the new mix definitely makes it seem as if Edge is saying "Shot".

Maybe Jacknife took it from an early demo of the song? That's the theory regarding the Streets remix, so there's a possibility.

I think Edge definitely goes for "Sky" live but I fully agree, it sounds absolutely like a "sh..." to me on record. And it sounds better too.

When I was in a cover band and my english was even worse than it is today, I sang "shy" which makes no sense at all...LOL
